Swipe and sign

The Wall Street Journal explains why the regime of ubiquitous debit cards with chips, already present in Canada and many other places, has been slow to arrive in the US, but apparently is on its way.

Because I still have a Canadian bank account, complete with debit card with chip, from my Western Ontario days, I have experienced the new regime on my travels to Canada. It is definitely much nicer than swipe and sign.
